About the museum

Norah Head Lighthouse is the only lighthouse on the Central Coast of New South Wales. It was designed by the architect James Barnet in a style distinctive to NSW lighthouses of the 19th century[1]. The lighthouse site consists of the lightstation, three cottage buildings and a stable, carpark, asphalt track, and a number of small sheds[2]. The lightstation site is listed under NSW State Heritage register, and is managed by the Department of Land and Water Conservation with assistance from the Norah Head Lighthouse Reserve Trust[3].
